Imagine we had an application with two components, a website, and a database. A change to the database doesn’t necessarily mean a change to the website. An index could be added, a stored procedure could be updated to be more efficient. A change to the website doesn’t necessarily mean a change to the database. A .css file could be updated or a tweak to the react code. You shouldn’t have to deploy the database if you just want to update the website and vice versa. One way to set this up is to have a project for each component. And then use the deploy a release step as a traffic cop. The traffic cop project is only used when you need to deploy to testing/staging/production. The build servers automatically build and trigger a release to development.
The website can be deployed without using the master project, so you place a manual intervention step in the process.
When the traffic cop project is used, you want the manual interventions to happen there.
However, when you do that, the manual interventions in the child projects will still fire. How can we skip them?
